As previously announced, (April 19, 2018), dbSNP Entrez currently only house human data. In addition, the Entrez and eUtils report formats RS docsum, XML, ASN.1, FASTA, and FLAT format will no longer be available. dbSNP entrez will transition to a new single compact eSummary format. Please see here for further details. Please contact snp-admin@ncbi.nlm.nih.gov if you have any comments or concerns.
